"SINCE pinto beans and mashed potatoes were our usual daily fare, salmon was a special treat on Sundays. We ate these cakes fast as Mama could fry them—she couldn't get them off the griddle fast enough."
I'm always up for a good salmon dinner, but this is the best recipe I've ever made. Strawberry jam might seem like a surprise in an Asian-inspired dish, but it makes a sweet-savory glaze that impresses everyone—even my boyfriend, who doesn't like fish. —Krystina Cahalan, Winter Park, Florida
I'm always up for new ways to cook salmon. In this dish, a sweet sauce gives the fish and green beans some down-home barbecue tang. Even our kids love it. —Aliesha Caldwell, Robersonville, North Carolina
Not only is this my husband's favorite meal, but it's a dish dinner guests enjoy as well. The delicate taste is a wonderful reminder that it is as delicious as it is healthy. —Joan Garneau of Ellenton, Florida
"This is the perfect thing to make for a speedy, healthy meal. I sometimes prepare the marinade in the morning and put the salmon in when I get home from work, and within 30 minutes, they're sizzling on the grill. Add a salad and dinner's ready!"
Joan Hallford, North Richland Hills, TX
This is a terrific way to fix salmon...and it's so easy to do. The marinade mellows the fish flavor, and the dill sauce is a wonderful complement. I once served this recipe to 12 people from the Pacific Northwest who declared it was the best salmon they'd ever eaten!

“I’m not usually a seafood fan, but I ordered a similar salmon dish at a restaurant, and I couldn’t stop eating it. My recipe re-creation has become a favorite with family and friends.” —Renee McIlheran, Lockport, Illinois
A local restaurant used fresh peaches to garnish a salmon dish, which gave me this idea for grilling the fish we catch. It’s a beautiful presentation and quick to prepare. —Valerie Homer, Juneau, Alaska
